We loved our stay here. It's quiet, has easy access to metro and sightseeing. It is quaint, and has a great 1 person lift. It's nice to have breakfast onsite before a busy day. Room is small but has everything you need. Nice bathrooms. Loved it, thanks!
A quaint and old style hotel with very friendly and attentive staff. The location was great - we were able to walk to most places and it was also close to Metro station. The room was fine and clean so we were happy with our stay.
Hi to my travel friend. I was very disappointed with my stay at Pax Opera. It is very far from everything for one. The Hotel was busy with renovations and in the halls tools and equipment, and smelly. The breakfast was also not to satisfaction. But the thing that was troubling me for the taxi to the airport the Hotel give us one price and wen we paid the taxi driver is was more.But overall I was not happy with the Hotel I expected more.
We stayed at the Hotel Pax Opera for a week. We were looking for an affordable hotel in a good location (it is about three blocks from a metro station), that was clean, and also had a decent breakfast each morning. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. They spoke French, English, and Spanish. In addition to being attentive, they were also very good about giving people directions to different areas of the city. When we arrived, a nice lady gave us a map and circled the nearest station for us. Our room was very clean each day when we returned. The breakfast is pretty good (cheeses, meats, breads, cereal, and fruit). The bed was comfortable. The free Internet was also nice. We had a room with a window, so we did hear some street noise. For Americans who have never traveled to Europe, the hotel rooms are small. For that reason, we booked a superior room.
This was booked through a travel agent and proved to be excellent for our stay. Had an attic room which was bright, comfortable and with an adequate en-suite. 10 minute walk from Gare du Nord, very close to Metro and bus routes and only 20 minutes walk to the Louvre. Plenty of places nearby to eat or buy food. Very welcoming and helpful staff. Breakfast not included but available for a cost. Free wifi and complimentary coffee, tea etc in the room. The lift is very small but perfectly adequate for us.
I stayed here for 3 nights for a work trip. It's an okay hotel not too far from Gare du Nord which is why my boss picked it. Room was not huge but that's typical for Parisian hotels. Everything was fine until the second night I stayed there when I saw bed bugs crawling on the bedspread. They were very easy to spot as the bedspread in hotel is white. Being from NYC, I've done a lot of research on bed bugs and I know what they look like though I've never personally dealt with them before. I told the hotel the next day and they did switch me to a bigger room but unfortunately I don't think this solved the bed bug problem. I had bites on my neck and also on my arm which I noticed when I returned home. I didn't see them in the second room and they told me they were going to "disinfect" the first room I stayed in but I don't think they understand how to truly get rid of bed bugs in France and I doubt the exterminators there have the same kind of products American exterminators use to eradicate them (I also don't think they called an exterminator to come check the room which was room 37 by the way). They are not easy to get rid of and simply vacuuming and "airing out the room" isn't going to solve the problem. France really needs to figure out how to deal with bed bugs--they are a real problem and simply changing rooms is not going to solve the problem since bed bugs travel with you on your clothes and your suitcase and will simply be brought into the following room. So not saying you shouldn't stay here at all but you might want to check the bed/headboard first before you commit to staying for the night.
Pros: It's pretty close from the subway station, Cadet. so it was very convenient. Neutral: Breakfast is just ok. Cons: However, experience at that place was not pleasant at all. I don't know French but could tell whether a phone call that the employee at the front desk made was a business call or a personal call. It definitely didn't look like a business call. I had to wait more than 10 min until he said "Can I help you?" Well, it could be a culture difference that I couldn't understand but was tolerable. Bad experience: cleanness 1. You cannot tell if there is mold on grout in a bathroom since all grout color was dark blue. 2. I thought my wife and I were the only two to stay in a room but there were more. BUGS! I couldn't sleep at all since they were crawling on my body all night long. I woke up and took a picture after I got one of them.
I was a bit disappointed by this hotel seeing that the pictures did not match the reality. The room was more dated than it looked when i booked it. There was a stale smell when I first entered the room even though it was quite spacious and the curtains and the overall feeling was of being dusty. The bed and linen weren't too bad, and the bathroom was clean, with the basics. The breakfast was not included in the price, which is a minus; it was not a cheap room. The location is not the best for tourists( one of the closest landmarks is Opera Garnier), and the neighbourhood lacks charm. There is though a metro station nearby and the staff is ok. All in all, as a tourist, I would not return to this hotel.
Just off from the main city walked everywhere from here 20min to louvre and 15 mins for the hop on bus. It's 2 mins to the metro. Hotel itself is lovely and clean staff are very helpful they get you to where you want to be.
The location of this hotel is nice. A grocery store around the corner, several bakeries, restaurants and deli markets within a few blocks. Galeries Lafayette is pretty close (about 10 minute walk) and easy to get to. The hotel is just off the main road so easy to get a taxi (or have the front desk call one for you). There is a beverage machine in the lobby, 24/7 water and juice. Rooms are clean and well appointed. Breakfast in the main dining area is pretty good. Overall, I would stay there again if in Paris.
